Pressure tank bad?
We just bought a new house on a well/ septic with a pressure tank. The well inspector shook the tank and told me it was shot based on the fact that he heard water sloshing around inside. Said the bladder has a hole. Makes sense to me I guess. I've read that when this happens, you can refresh the air pressure in the tank and use it similarly to the old style pressure tank essentially bypassing the bladder. I understand I'd need to do this periodically as the air depletes itself with the water. True? Is there any danger in doing this? Is it sanitary? Obviously I will replace the pressure tank at some point. I'm just wondering if it can move down the list of improvements I need to do to the house as we can afford them.
